MANILA, Philippines – Crooner Richard Poon and actress Maricar Reyes made their first public appearance together at the Star Magic Ball last Saturday after admitting that they are officially a couple.

In an interview on the red carpet at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel, Reyes said it was time to come out with their relationship.

“Masaya to come out. It seemed like the right time. Kung magkamali, ganun talaga pero hopefully, parang hindi naman,” she said.

Reyes said Poon has several characteristics that she learned to love and that she has learned a lot from the singer.

“OC (obsessive compulsive) siya. A lot of things na hindi ko nakikita, nakikita niya so parang lagi akong may natututunan,” she said.

Poon, for his part, said the combination of their personalities is what makes their relationship work.

“People always say na our temperaments blend. She’s very gentle eh, ako very passionate ako eh. Hindi siya iba sa akin kasi after one and a half years, friendship ang mas nangingibabaw,” he said.

It was only last week when Poon admitted on "KrisTV" that he and Reyes are already in a relationship.

"[Since] Just, last July... I think July 1st," Poon told host Kris Aquino, adding that he first met Reyes while doing the music video for his song "You and I."

Poon first admitted that he was courting Reyes back in October 2010, saying Reyes is the first celebrity he has pursued.

Poon also said he is even considering marrying Reyes.
